India and Australia are getting themselves ready for the title of the ICC U-19 World Cup on the Bay Oval (New Zealand) ground.

Starting their chase, Indian openers Manjot Kalra and skipper Prithvi Shaw came to the field and immediately started blasting runs at the Aussie bowlers.

Australia cruised to victory against Afghanistan in the semifinal while India rolled their arch-rivals Pakistan for just 69 in Christchurch on Tuesday after they were held to 9-272 from their 50 overs.

It was India's fourth World Cup trophy, which is a record in the history of the tournament. On the day, Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti stepped up too to announce their arrival on the world stage.

The Indian top three scored half-centuries against Australia in the earlier encounter, but Australia will believe they have a good chance this time. If India wants to register a win in the World Cup final, both the bowlers will have to deliver to their potential, perhaps, for the last time!

Syria may be developing new chemical weapons, senior U.S. officials say
Nearly all independent analysts and investigators agree the Syrian regime is the culprit of the chemical attacks. The official was referring to Russia's media offensive to deny its connection to chemical weapons use in Syria .

Since thrashing the Aussies by 100 runs in their opening match, India have proved simply unstoppable, winning five successive games easily. The Rahul Dravid-coached team has made into the headlines by reaching the finals of the ICC U19 World Cup now being played in New Zealand where they face Australia on Saturday.

So it'll all end the way it began for India and Australia.

Australia, who had little hesitation in batting first, were guilty of not converting starts into big partnerships.

"I guess our job is to get through those players at the top and get into the middle and lower-order", Harris said.

Jack Edwards: The opening batsman was the only player to have had success against India, scoring 73 and picking up four wickets in the first game.

With the Indian team running on a cocktail of confidence and self-belief, it will take a special effort to deny them the title.

Kamlesh Nagarkoti (2/41), another find for India in the tournament, removed Australian captain Jason Sangha (13) that moved away just enough to take the edge to the wicket-keeper.

Australia U-19 (From): Jack Edwards, Max Bryant, Jason Sangha (c), Jonathan Merlo, Param Uppal, Nathan McSweeney, Will Sutherland, Baxter J Holt (w), Zak Evans, Ryan Hadley, Lloyd Pope, Xavier Bartlett, Jarrod Freeman, Patrick Rowe, Austin Waugh.

This is the second time that India have defeated Australia in the final. It's really fantastic to see some young fast bowlers coming out of India.
